Using this primate research as a point of reference, we believe one can reasonably argue that the squish enucleation process for creating human SCNT blastocysts for stem cell research might very well have the effect of simultaneously barring these SCNT blastocysts from developing into a future human life.
Although local control may be achieved with enucleation and/or orbital irradiation, the systemic prognosis is usually poor.
Monocular enucleation of tadpoles, followed by a 2- or 14-week survival period, resulted in visibly diminished immunostaining of the stratum opticum in the denervated optic tectum contralateral to the enucleation for all developmental stages studied, results that imply a relationship between the 1H12 antigen and the optic fibers.
We therefore concluded that the detection of TUNEL-positive erythroblasts may reflect a normal physiologic stage of erythroid differentiation associated with chromatin condensation and subsequent enucleation.
Post Enucleation Socket Syndrome (PESS) (significant loss of orbital tissue after the loss of an eye) which is exhibited through an anophthalmic appearance with a retraction or ptosis of the upper eye-lid and orbital floor fracture (when the orbital rim is occluded by an appropriately sized object by which the eye-ball is pressurized resulting fracture of the orbital floor) are very common post-operative problems after enucleation / evisceration surgery.
